Centers for School-age Development

We focus on preparing youth for the future – in a way that is ENGAGING, INSPIRING, and FUN! 

We give kids opportunities to work on skills that research tells us are most important for success:

  • Communication & Critical Thinking
  • Teamwork & Collaboration
  • Career Exposure
  • Real World Work Experiences
  • Problem Solving

With an emphasis on the core subject areas (science, technology, engineering, math, social studies, art, language arts, and physical education), the CSD program is intentionally structured to develop skills while keeping the kids engaged and learning.

Before School
When the children arrive, they have several choices. Teachers offer ideas and inspiration, but the children choose how to spend their mornings – they might read a book, create a work of art, invent a product, or explore various subjects by using the many stimulating resources and materials provided. We help nourish their bodies and minds by providing a healthy breakfast. When the school bell is about to ring, children are dismissed to their classes (or ride the bus to school).

After School:
The children are warmly greeted when they arrive and provided a healthy snack as they gather around the table for an afternoon “update meeting” and conversations with friends. Afterwards, the children have several choices. They can release some energy and run, jump, or play during outdoor time. Inside time allows for organized games and projects (many that focus on STEM areas) and time to tackle those homework assignments!

In SUMMIT CSD, children are supported by caring qualified teachers. They make new friends and have opportunities for discovery through hands-on learning! There are planned activities that emphasize the core subject areas – science, technology, engineering, math, social studies, art, language arts, and physical education – and leadership development opportunities, like our program-wide youth council that meets monthly via video conference.
